     It is weird that this piece should arrive today for it was during my meditation today, after a little over 20 years of meditation, that I realized some of what is said above..  I love being ordinary.  I make the mistake, and sometimes go too far, and want to be no one going nowhere.  It would not be a mistake if I simultaneously realized that being no one means being no separate person and that I am clearly connected to everyone and everything much more  than being separate from everyone and everything. It is also weird because I told my wife about my meditation experience today  (telling her a little over an hour ago) what makes Zen Buddhist practice so extraordinary is that it is being so ordinary.  I mention Zen for what I say yet  I believe what is mentioned in this peace and. is true for all facets of Buddhism and is probably  true for Hinduism..  Christianity of the type practiced by Thomas Merton ( and Robt. Kennedy S.J.) and Islam, Jewish, and Taoist practice, at a most basic level probably experienced the same  as do all wise and compassionate people.Thank you Somik and thanks for the opportunity to respond. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
